Default Roasted veggies and beans

It is almost time for fresh garden veggies and salads and stir fries. But if your still going to get a few cool rainy days there is nothing like the taste of roasted veggies. I used black beans and I think kidney beans would be good, whatever you like. Even non-vegetarian sites have some great ideas these days. Taking a meat break is healthy.

I would make it tonight too but my eyesight is very blurry so my breakfast chef (roger) is making a salad. . I do have everything I need to make it though.
We could use this thread to list our spin-offs of this recipe too!

SAGE! You should be resting your eyeballs.....And here you are playing.

It's in the oven now....It's smelling mighty rosemary----eeeee
Was I suppose to use fresh rosemary? I used the dried. Maybe I should have halved it!!!!!
We'll see.

I hope i can see better tomorrow!

Rosemary is very strong! I was concerned because I planned to use fresh Rosemary, but I think the recipe called for dried. I should have pinched some off and let it dry til I make the dish.

I bought some fresh rosemary, basil and parsley last week and put them in front of the kitchen window! Still don't know if the robins are planning a nest site on the balcony! Will I have an herb and veggie balcony garden this year?

The veggies were real good! I'd make it again. The peppers added a nice flavor but of course anything with toasty green peppers and onions is always welcomed into my tummy. I was afraid the lima-butter beans might be too soft to substitute with but they worked out just fine too.

I've hardly cooked using rosemary because it appears sooooooo dry and picky. I'm always afraid it won't soften before you eat the dish but by making the garlic-oil drizzle ahead of time like I did was just fine. I didn't notice any tiny spikes in the dish. Fresh should be even better! They usually recommend using HALF the amount when using dry ingredients so if you're using fresh you may have to double it?

YES definitely Go for the herb garden!!!!!!!!!
Since you're switching to veggies it will be a BIG plus for you!!!

It's been too warm for me to want to turn on the oven, but my other half (a dedicated meat eater) enjoyed the black bean chili/stew/whatever you want to call it that I made last night. It's super easy, just black beans (and others if you have them on hand--chickpeas look nice), tomatoes, peppers, onions, corn, and spices. A dollop of yogurt on top is nice if you've gone heavy on the red pepper, and sometimes I'll throw in carrots or sweet potatoes if we have some that need to be used.
